The BEST quick & easy party appetizer!
If you like to party and eat good food, but you’re super lazy like me, then this appetizer was made for you. Simply layer these 3 ingredients together in a pie dish, and bake for 25 minutes. That’s it! This creamy dip is absolutely delicious served with Fritos Scoops.
Feel free to use any chili that you would like. You could even use a can of vegetarian chili! The cream cheese and cheddar are hearty enough to skip the meat. I personally prefer chunky chili with beans, but to each their own.
As you can see, the ingredients are very simple. I’m a HUGE Cream cheese fan, so I always go for dips that include it.
First, use the back of a large spoon to evenly spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a glass pie dish.
It should look something like this.
Next, spread the chili over the top of the cream cheese.
Looking good so far!
To make it even easier, you could throw everything together in the dish ahead of time and put it in the fridge until you are ready to pop it in the oven.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the chili. I used one large cup, but you can NEVER have too much cheese. Right?
Break out that bag of Fritos because you are getting close to dipping time.
Place the pie dish in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
Oh my goodness!!! It’s so good.
Everyone will be asking you for the recipe.
… and here it is.
